Re: Kenmore 80 series
If you remove agitaor and start cycly see if the shaft is turning 180 * both ways, use a rag and grab it it should not stop. if it does your transmission is bad, if not your agitator drive bell is worn out. simple to remedy. ( if transmission is bad, there's a small plastic cam in the center of transmission that is broken, a $2 part, but requires complete disassembly of tranny.)

hum either a bad timer sticking the point contacts close. have u tried this in all cycles? and possibly a motor with bad windings not enough power to run agitation? try running in mild or gentle and see what happens? I was tempted to say the cam dogs in agitator but they dont work then stop then work, when they go out they go out.
check to make sure the belt hasn't come off. if it's direct drive make sure the shaft is working and moving freely. if all of these check out the motor that turns everything my be stuck, frozen up or just bad all together.
Hi, Remove the cap on the agitator and then remove the inside cover. There is a 7/16" bolt under the inside cover. Remove the bolt and the agitator will lift out. Seperate the 2 pieces of the agitator and replace the dogs. You might have to use a flat blade screw drive and punch out the 4 tabs around the bolt hole in the agitator if this applies.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.
Check the agitator by turning it back and forth. It should work like a
ratchet (turns one way, locks the other way).If you're able to turn it
in both directions, the agitator dogs are worn and need to be replaced.
Remove the agitator cap and the bolt that holds down the
agitator. With the bolt out you can remove the top section of the
agitator (auger) where you should see 4 small white or beige plastic
gears (dogs). Replace those and it should be ok.
My Kenmore series 80 washer has sucked a shirt into the agitator and I cannot remove the agitator to free the shirt. How do I remove the agitator?. Do you have a diagram of the machine that I could look at to find it? The model is 238321000
